1 cube butter?

I need to know what 1 cube of butter is. I have a recipe from Costa Rica that calls for 1 cube. Is it the same as 1 stick?

Re: 1 cube butter?

A cube of butter is 1 ounce, which is 2 tablespoons.

its called a cube because when cut a 1/2 stick in half, you're left with perfect cubes.

Re: 1 cube butter?

cube of butter is a quarter of a stick of butter, that is to say 1oz. If you cut the stick in half and then half again you will see why it is called a cube of butter! As a rough guide 2 tablespoons equals 1 cube.
Your recipe will need half a stick, 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons, just choose the measure you prefer.

Re: 1 cube butter?

Thanks so much--I never heard of a "cube of butter" before this recipe that called for it. I have always read butter in tablespoons--so you saved the day. Also, never thought I would find the answer to my question so easily on the web!!!! Wish I could give you a piece of my Texas Sheet Cake......

Re: 1 cube butter?

In the Western US a cube of butter is a stick. One stick is 1/2 cup.

I ran into this same problem with this recipe which calls for cube of butter. note that in the end, the blogger said her measurement is 1 cube = 1/4 pound or 1/2 cup, that's 4 ounces or 1 stick. christinecooks.blogspot.com/2007/07/oatmeal-cookies-with-crystallized.html

Re: 1 cube butter?

This is Christine of Christine Cooks.
I've always called a stick of butter a "cube", probably because my mother did. It may be a good rule of thumb, when reading a recipe from the U.S., to assume a cube is 1 stick, which equals 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons. Many of the previous comments explained a cube in terms of equal-sided parts of a stick. A stick, in other parts of the world can be quite different, sometimes twice the size, of a U.S. stick.
After reading this interesting thread, from now on I will call out my butter measurements in tablespoons or cups.
